The future look of news:


As the face of the media changes, we are interested in what forms it will take?  Will the new media be able to report in-depth on our environment?

Will the new media have the funds to pay for serious environmental investigations or will they merely help spread what few media have sufficient funds to do serious environmental reporting.  These are serious matter for the future of both the media and keeping ourselves informed on our environment. 

At present, it doesn’t look good.  The public seems disinterested in the very life support system that keeps them alive and the media seems very interested in pandering to the public’s interest in other things—sports, fashion, car accidents, etc. 

Here is one model the new media that has a section on Global Warming.  Check it out:  

The Real News Network "is a television news and documentary network focused on providing independent and uncompromising journalism. Our staff, in collaboration with courageous journalists around the globe, will investigate report and debate stories on the critical issues of our times. We are viewer supported and do not accept advertising, government or corporate funding."
